an unrecognized disease

What is endometriosis?

Endometriosis is a chronic gynecological disease that affects 1 in 10 women, or about 176 million people. This inflammatory condition is caused by the presence of endometrial-like tissue outside the uterus in women who are in good health. The result is gynaecological pain and infertility. Nowadays, it is unfortunately common for a diagnosis to be made late: up to ten years can pass between the discovery of the first symptoms and the confirmation of the disease.

The story of Marion, founder of Elia
A personal story

A long-lasting, silent inflammatory disease that gives signs of life for a while without ever really revealing itself...

Then one day, sometimes after months or years of pelvic pain, heavy periods, urinary discomfort, disrupted sexual relations, aborted pregnancy plans, you finally manage to find a cause, to put a name to what you have:endometriosis. It's a long way to go: very long diagnosis times and endless waiting for painful tests.

This is the story of Marion, the founder of Elia, but it may also be yours, that of your daughter, your mother, or a loved one in your circle.

Elia donates 10% of its profits
The fight against endometriosis, a cause we care about

Women suffering from endometriosis can go through several stages (hysteroscopy, laparoscopy, removal of the ovaries, tubes, artificial menopause, continuous pill...). However, no treatment has yet been found and clinical research is rare around the disease.

Marion's visceral desire to fight against endometriosis in order to accelerate awareness of this disease and therefore its treatment is part of the genesis and DNA of the Elia brand.

This is why we support associations fighting against endometriosis. 10% of Elia's profits are donated to research projects and to support women facing this disease. In this way, each of your purchases contributes to making endometriosis known to the general public. Because there are no small contributions, only big commitments.
